For me, this poem begs the question:
Does the tree release the leaf, or does the leaf release the tree?

The Release of the Leaf is an Easy Relief.

It is interesting that the tree is not an explicit character in the poem. Perhaps the 1-like shape of the entire poem is actually tree-like.

I like the focus on the leaf. The tree is understood (for me anyway)

And coming back to the math induction thing, if the tree is understood, then so is the forest and the earth that it is planted in and the air that surrounds it and the space it moves through and the sun it revolves around, etc.
